I recently learned about the upcoming 6-month T-Bills auction on 4th July, with speculation on whether interest rates will surpass 3.8% or decrease once again. It appears that T-Bills yields have been on the decline due to market expectations of interest rate cuts in the second half of 2024. In addition, Singapore’s factory output exceeded expectations with a 2.9% increase in May, driven by a rebound in the electronics sector. I also came across an article discussing strategies for earning $6000+ a month in passive dividend income as a Singapore Investor in 2024, and another one on the importance of home insurance in Singapore and the various types available.

I also read about smart ways to store cash, with a focus on high-yield ETFs to consider purchasing now, as well as tax benefits for landlords and financing options for home projects. The article also mentioned airlines with the most and least legroom, as well as FedEx stock experiencing a significant increase following strong earnings. Lastly, it discussed a tax-friendly strategy for deferring capital gains tax through a 1031 Exchange.

Stay Well!
